Today was my sons last day at Kiwikidz Homebased Educare with Robyn Pennings. I just wanted to write and say thank you for the professional, fun, reliable, and caring service that you have provided us (and the community!) and to recognise Robyn who is an absolute godsend.  

The thought of starting back at work and leaving my only child with someone else was nerve racking to say the least, but from the moment I met Robyn she made me feel completely comfortable. She has always been flexible, kind, and she communicates regularly which I really appreciate also. Robyn made the transition for my son (and myself!) very easy, and it was very sad for us to say goodbye to her today!  

Words cannot express how appreciative I am for Kiwikidz and Robyn. Thank you so very, very much for playing an important part in my sons upbringing, and for giving him some of the best experiences as a toddler. We have the portfolios to reflect on which we will always treasure.  

Keep up the great work, and thank you once again!

Happy Parent

We have had our two sons in Cindy’s care now over four years as they move through from toddlers to school children and we cannot speak highly enough of her. She is a wonderful person. Cindy is kind, caring and fantastic with the children. Cindy always put the children first and I feel so confident having them in her care when I can’t be with them. Cindy takes on board parent’s ideas and thoughts on routines and family values and this put together with her skills, time and energy is a winning combination. We feel very lucky to have met Cindy when we did as she has made our life and journey up here in Warkworth that much better. We know Cindy will be in our lives for avery long time even after the children have left her to head off to school.

I would like to make a special commendation for ‘Auntie Lee’, she is one of life’s true gems.  The time and care she takes with Jack and all in her care to nurture their natural talents, encourage confidence and self sufficiency is outstanding.  Nothing is too much trouble, her first priority is always the children’s happiness.  She really makes a difference in Jacks life, he adores his time with her – thank you for having someone so special on your team, she is fantastic. Can’t sing her or Kiwikidz praises highly enough.

Chrissy was caregiver for our 11 year old son when he was young and has now cared for our 3 year old daughter since she was one. I cannot recommend Chrissy highly enough, she is such a caring person especially with children and always has their best interest at heart. I always know Ruby is in good hands and it is wonderful to see how excited she gets knowing she’s spending the day with Chrissy and her little friends and what their adventure will be that day from doing crafts, painting/glueing etc (she brings some masterpieces home) to meeting up with others at the park/playcentre or plunket rooms to having tea parties in Chrissy’s lounge. Every day is different.

We feel so blessed to have had Chrissy care for both our children and they both love her very much.

Chrissy is a guardian angel to children whenever they need her. She is always patient and caring with them and they feel safe around her fun energy.
